itself is basically a troublesome prospect, whether you are in africa or china or india or others. so the bigger picture is a combination of dealing with the substantive challenges that the u.s. and europe and japan face, but also a sense about what role they would play in shaping this future international system that does, as everybody here working on development knows, have some incredible opportunities. one does not have to look at gloom and doom in this. africa has grown an average of about 5% for a decade. there's lots of opportunities there. we have private capital growing. china has grown 9.9%. it depends how you look at the world, but there are great opportunities, but they have to be seized, and we have to figure out how developed and emerging markets were together in a different way than they did in the past. bob, another news item getting a lot of justified attention is the food crisis in eastern africa, where 11 million people are at some risk in the current drought. this is everything from research on seats, including different conditions of climate change and drought and

for the shareholders of the east india tea company. there's the government being oppressive, the parliament, and i think it's important to understand what the revolution was about for many ordinary patriots was this effort to set up governments of their own, that their problem was that their governments lacked the power to protect the people and promote their prosperity, and that to understand the movement soully as antigovernment is to understand it really halfway and partly from the point of view of thee most well to do who are always the ones who can do without less government, and not from the point of view of the many people who made the revolution happen. thank you.

to be sent overseas to customers and consumers and places like china, in places like india and brazil. when i say the things that we make, things that are made here in america. american economy, actually as we speak is slowly becoming more explore oriented, more manufacturing. look at some of these charts, you actually see an upturn taking place in the manufacturing sector, in the expert sector. the problem is that in the last ten or twenty years as the economy became so dependent on american consumers who are now reluctant to spend. those sectors got hollowed out really thinned out. the growth we are seeing in manufacturing, for instance, believe it or not. we are seeing upturns and we have a story in the paper today about car makers helping to drive the recovery. we are seeing upturns in the midwest in the great lakes states. they are just not big enough anymore to drive the overall economy. it used to be in the 1980s and 1970s, we would have the big inventory where they would cut back and rebuild and drive the economy out of recession and into an recovery. manufacturing isn't big enough to

that we used to make care are now being made in china and india and are being imported. you also have technology. if you go into a modern auto factory, there are fewer people walking around than there was 30 years a. go in the long run, those are good things. it makes people more productive and wealthier and that sort of thing. in the near term, that can have the effect that the caller is talking about which is fewer jobs available and less work to go around especially for people who don't have the best educations and want to work with their hands. it is definitely a phenomenon that is going on. host: raleigh, north carolina, republican line. caller: i have a question and comment. do you think that na the relativeivete of president obama when he took office accounts for the fact that he overstated and misrepresented the effect of the stimulus bill? we know that he is learning on the job. i want to know if the stimulus bill in itself was adequate or was obama misrepresenting it? secondly, with the unemployed rate rising, is that not more of an example of the cyclical economic trends th

, they go other places and when they go other places like china, india, mexico, vietnam, they take our jobs with them. i've heard a lot about medicare. the only party in this house who has cut medicare is the democrat party. $500 billion out of medicare in an ipab bill that is going to ration care for our seniors. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair would remind members to heed the gavel. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: mr. speaker, i would urge my colleagues to look at the congressional budget office analysis of the impact of the republican budget on senior citizens on medicare. essentially what they do is give seniors a raw deal compared to what members of congress get themselves. anda raw deal in a big way. -- a raw deal in a big way. with that i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from ohio. mr. jordan: yield one minute to dr. fleming. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from louisiana. mr. fleming: thank you. mr. speaker, but for the president of the united states who serves today and a democrat-co
. there are some jobs that will not come back. if a company can send workers overseas to places like india and get a job done for a cheaper fee, of course they're going to do it. so yes, some jobs won't come back. there has been some hiring believe it or not in manufacturing. that's when one area of growth. the elephant in the room, unfortunately, is the fact that wages haven't moved at all so that's a major issue. while some people are worried about inflation, because you see price hikes on every commodity from oil to milk to copper and iron ore, at the same time wages haven't moved so the fed is saying well there's no inflation because we're watching wages. for the average guy and gal out there with a job, they are unfortunately seeing their pay at a flat rate. >> and consumer deplanned is a big driver of the economy and ultimately job creation. but again we talk about debt. mortgage debt. what's the consumer up to right now? >> the consumer has been spending in spotty places. some areas of retail that have actually seen some vibrancy. upper end and lower end have done better than the middle. yo
immediately conclude that those jobs were sent overseas to india or china, but, in fact, one- third of those jobs went to canada, where they have one of the most regressive tax credits in the world, so i think our brothers up north may have something we can learn from here. this is not the only decision we made, but they have done a very effective job in neutralizing some of the differences

of those tax cuts in china or in india or job creation in many other places other than here. and the balance part of this amendment requires the passage of a balanced budget constitutional amendment that would require a supermajority to raise any new revenue or close any wasteful tax loopholes. so in other words, you don't have to have a supermajority to decide where and what you're going to wind up spending but you have to have a supermajority in order to raise any revenue or close an egregious tax loophole. one that may have no economic purpose, may be completely outdated, may be a sweetheart deal that got into the tax code over o the course of the years, but you still have to get a supermajority to get rid of that. everybody here knows how hard it is to get 60 votes. a lot of the business in the united states senate has been caught up by the eternal filibuster. every single nomination, every single small piece of legislation that comes to the floor of the senate, everything requires a motion to proceed which requires 60 votes, which is effectively a filibuster each time.
